Art and Art History

Lapsus Undone

Lapsus Undone explores the perennial condition of transformation as reflected in our surroundings, our bodies, our histories and technologies. Curated by students in Professor Lia Alexopoulos’ Museum/Gallery Practicum course, this exhibit invites the visitor to reflect on circumstances that have shaped the present, put aside constructs of reality and leave behind the place left.
